The Governor said this during a media briefing on Saturday.

He said the lockdown would be extended depending on the situation of things, adding that the number of patients discharged in Lagos had risen to 24.

He said, “If there’s a need to extend the lockdown, I will. We got one discharged patient today (recovered from the coronavirus). We are going to sit down with the committee that is working on the community markets and see if we can announce more next week.”
